Edit my holidays?

Posted in: Work

My work at the museum is a constant series of distractions that interfere with my work at the museum... editing tasks for the museum that have little to do with the research writing and editing that I should be doing. Yet the museum as a whole is important, and I am happy if I can help the museum fulfil its role in public education.

So, here I am about to leave Japan for a short period of holidays in my home country, New Zild, and my bag is heavy with the research papers that I most urgently need to edit.



But... if can actually make time to relax, I am sure that my editing efforts will be much better as a result. I need the holidays, and the editing needs holidays too.
